According to the district’s definition of Gifted and Talented, it is the following:
“In the Denver Public Schools, “gifted and talented children” means those students whose demonstrated abilities, talents and/or potential for accomplishment are so exceptional or developmentally advanced that they require special provisions to meet their educational needs. These students perform, or show the potential of performing, at remarkably high levels in intellectual, specific academic, or creative areas when compared with others of their age and experience. Gifted and talented children are present in all student groups, regardless of gender, disability, English language proficiency, economic status, ethnic or cultural background.”
This correlates with the IB mission when it comes to high quality and standards. We seek to address and foster those children who have been recognized as high performers and to create a better world through education, even those possessing high levels of performance or show the potential of performing, at remarkably high levels in intellect and/or creativity.
